Lenovo ThinkPad T420 with UEFI Only

5,062 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

so i switched to model MBP9,1 instead of MBP8,1 and now its acts like a supported Mac. I was able to download Mojave from the App Store directly Been running mojave on my T420 and my real MBP for a few days now and its pretty solid. 

 

 

Note: if i boot with MBP9,1 I get random panics related to USB. MBP8,1 works but is not a *supported* platform. 

 

I just reposted the latest release on github...

that may help with Audio support for Mojave (and High Sierra) .. Older releases will remain for Sierra etc.

@jgn123 hmm odd that to be a problem with DSDT since you seem to have the same base DSDT as me. 1.46.  i dont know why it doesnt work with an SSD? my system has one?

@tluck Sorry for the late reply! I just came back from vacation.

I only have one 2.5 inch SSD in it.  Is there a way that you could patch my DSDT that I attached here so I could try.  It's weird that mine won't boot with your DSDT.

 

Much appreciated! origin.zip

@jgn123 - but you have the exact same DSDT (original) as me? 

can you try a spinning disk instead of the SSD?

Hey tluck!

 

Could you give me a bit more details how to upgrade to the Mojave beta? My High Sierra installation is unstable anyway, so I don't risk anything with trying out the Mojave beta. I'm hoping the freezes will go away...

Thanks.

i just updated the T420 distribution on GitHub with the kexts and config.plist I am using. see config.1600x900.mojave.plist

 

pretty easy actually.

after you install Mojave, you will have to copy your High Sierra HD 3000 kexts to Mojave /S/L/E 

you need /System/Library/Extensions/*HD3000* and *SNB*

@tluck, I've just tried the hdd and it still got stuck at the same spot.  I'll try your new pack on Github to see how it goes.

Updated:  Just tried your new (Lenovo-T420-Clover-2018.07.14) pack and had the same problem.  

Do you have any suggestion?

Hi tluck,

To disable hibernation, I run this:

rm /var/vm/sleepimage

But the message says that  "No such file or directory"

Pls help me fix this error. Thanks :)

did you turn it off with pmset hibernatemode 0 ?

 

@jgn123

I dont know? so if you just dont use my patched DSDT and let clover patch the built-in one you should capture the resulting DSDT and see how different it is?

thanks tluck for last release (4600) :)

Thank you guys for still supporting this machine with updates. Even though my freezes has not gone with High Sierra, I'm not in the situation to be able to buy a real Mac so this topic is a true gem for me :)

well good luck with Mojave- been running for more than a week now. i do get random USB panics on startup. but once its up, it seems fine!

 

there seems to be a problem with the latest AppleALC i posted - seems to work on Mojave but not High Sierra. i hope to have it resolved tonight.

well - seems like the fix is to add ResetHDA=true to config.plist

Edited by tluck
fix for AppleALC 1.3.0 on High Sierra

Hi everyone,

 

So I managed to install everything thanks to tluck clover's files and now everything runs perfectly excepted for some video glitches like those in this video:

 

 

Do you know where it comes from? I have a lenovo T420 si which is pretty much the same configuration as the S model but with an i3 processor.

In the BIOS, I setted the graphics to Integrated Graphics.

 

Thanks in advance ;)

@blop135 I have the same problem you can try turn on "Show with clock" on "Screen Saver" for this issue. My issue has been resolved, but sometime there are horrizontal lines without flickering.

Seems like it solved it for the movies indeed but like you said, I do have some flickering lines that still appears on the menu. Do you have a T420 si too? I've seen that mine will never get Mojave, I guess it's because of the i3 processor that is not enough powerful. Maybe with the final release, they'll make it available to everyone.

It is an old problem which only related to hd3000 graphics but not hd4000 so on. I have tried to increase my vram to reduce but only fimd to remain well for a longer time. it is not cpu’s problem in my perspective, i have thinkpad x220 and lenovo g470 both have the horizontal line in random appearance.

Seems like it's less appearing this last day. I was talking about the Mojave's update for the CPU. I guess it's because I have an i3 that I can't install Mojave ;).

Yeah the lines are likely kids all of a sudden they appear and then disappear. i think i3 can have mojave installed but im not proved because both i have the second generation of core i5 and i7 without i3, apple ends the support for these mac models this year with mojave and someone still find a way to install and make hd3000 in a full acceleration condition only when ui glitches happen in white theme.@tluck also provides the test config of mojave maybe you can try that, after all lets wait until the stable version releases( ¨̮ )

So I did a clean install of High Sierra but my internal LCD didn't seem to be working. It would just give random lines after the apple logo each time unless I boot with Displayport connected and then took it out. Now with the confiug.1600x900.mojave.plist everything seems to be working fine? I'm running high Sierra though..

      Bonjour,
       
      Je rencontre un souci depuis la dernière maj supplémentaire catalina 10.15.4, même chose pour la 10.15.5 aujourd'hui : après le début de l'update, lorsque le pc redémarre, je ne vois pas le volume d'installation dans les volumes de l'écran de boot clover (v5118). j'ai juste Preboot dans les volumes cachés au démarrage, et j'ai essayé de les afficher, le préboot de l'install apparait bien mais le boot n'aboutit jamais par ce biais. du coup, je suis bloqué en 10.15.4. Auriez-vous une idée du problème ?

      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:
                                    
                       -/+:.          ningnan@ningnandeMacBook-Air
                      :++++.          OS: 64bit Mac OS X 10.15.5 19F96

           :ooooooooooooooooooo+.    
            `:+oo+/:-..-:/+o+/-     
       
       
      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro. EFI_HZ550.zip
